Become a Corporate Partner




Corporate Partnership

John Michael Kohler Arts Center welcomes your business and employees to experience the collaborative power that makes our mission so unique and far-reaching. A corporate partnership can include one or both of the following:



Arts Center events harness the power of the arts to bring diverse people of all ages and walks of life together. Our annual Levitt AMP Sheboygan Music Series, Midsummer Festival of the Arts, Gala, Live@608, and other events gives your business a marketing  strategy among local, national, and international audiences through our onsite, online, and print marketing.



Your philanthropic support joins your business with our mission-driven exhibitions, performances, educational programs, and community projects that annually reach more than 150,000 visitors. Your investment in any of these programmatic areas can be highlighted through donor listings in our atrium and on our website, gallery text panels, event signage, and performance programs.

In addition to marketing exposure, your combined sponsorship and investment entitles you to benefits such as:

  • Complimentary invitations and tickets
  • Special access to the Arts Center for offsite meetings or small events
  • Tailored workshops, discounts, and Corporate Partner Day for your employees
